|Jul-28-04|| ||patzer2: Black's sacrifice with 13. Rxg2?? backfires, and instead of a mating attack he winds up getting his Queen trapped. |

|Jul-28-04|| ||notsodeepthought: It's nice to sac your pieces like Tal, but you have to do so when the time is right (like Tal). |
|Jul-30-04|| ||Gypsy: <...he winds up getting his Queen trapped.> Looks to me that the queen can escape easy eough (17...Qg4). But the rook is gone and the mate on g2 did not materialize. |
|Aug-05-04|| ||patzer2: <Gypsy> If 17...Qg4, then 18. Bf5+ (double attack) wins the Queen and the game. |

Just the same as in Dutch.|
|Mar-28-11|| ||jbtigerwolf: Black still has a ghost of a chance, his checkmate shot being with the white-squared Bishop pointing to h1 and his Rook on the g-file. A major and 3 minors vs 3 majors and a minor, but no harm in playing on while still a chance. |
White can't immediately finish things, but it's not as if things are going to get bogged down. There's some enjoyable tactical play to be had in a dire situation, so there's no real reason to resign.
|Sep-15-11|| ||chillowack: jbtigerwolf, Black is down a queen and a rook for two minor pieces, and the mating pattern you describe is easily parried; therefore resignation was not premature.|
However: there are cases in chess where people do resign prematurely, and it's good that you are learning to analyze positions to try and figure that out.

|Jul-06-12|| ||belgradegambit: This is the classic kind of "oops" that happens in my attacks.|
